Political Newspapers

Creative Political Campaign Ideas

Political Newspapers

The goal of any political or election campaign is to get people to vote for you. This means that you need to get your name and face in front of as many people as you can, but it also means that you need to resonate with voters, win over those who are on the fence, and show yourself as the superior candidate. This is not only the goal, it is the problem as well.

Politicians have been using MakeMyNewspaper to solve this problem. With a dedicated, personalized newspaper, you can more easily get your values, your ideas, your goals, and your promises in front of people. It is a way to do what very few other avenues of promotion can do.

Here are some ideas:

Use a Newspaper Instead of a Flyer

You use flyers to get your name out there or to explain why you are a better candidate, but flyers just don’t give you the room to do your message justice. Another problem lies in the fact that flyers, for whatever reason, are just not as appealing to people. Leave a flyer on someone’s door and 9 times out of 10 it gets tossed. But a newspaper is physiologically different. A newspaper is associated with authority and legitimacy. Anyone can print a flyer, but a newspaper…it is just seen differently.

In addition, you’ll have a lot more room to share your message and even allow others to write articles for you that put you in a favorable light.

Create Newspaper Inserts

Newspaper inserts are a common marketing practice. However, they usually look just like a flyer. But a newspaper insert that is a newspaper itself, gives your campaign newspaper a sense of legitimacy and authoritative power.

Grassroots Involvement

A newspaper allows you to mobilize people who favor your campaign in ways they otherwise would not be able to. Yes, they can hand out or pass out your newspapers, but there is a bit more they can do:

  • A newspaper has room to write and add endorsements.
  • You can have constituents write recommendations or their experiences with a certain issue.
  • You can ask people to write articles that help you get your messages and values out.

These are just a few ideas, but a newspaper just might mean the difference in getting people to know you and your platform and not knowing.
